Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore Reaching out for Donations

Habitat for Humanity NCM is looking for donations for their ReStore. The ReStore, located in Leominster MA, sells donated new and gently used furniture, home improvement and building materials at a fraction (typically 50-70 percent) of the original retail value. All profits go to support home ownership for hard working families in North Central Massachusetts, while keeping good reusable materials in use and out of the landfill.

Since opening on January 5, 2011, the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore has diverted over 1,000 tons of goods from the landfill. That is over 2,205,000 pounds or about 77 dump trucks full of usable items. The ReStore mission is to increase the number of homes built for hard working, low income families, keep good and reusable items out of the landfill, provide quality materials to the general public at discounted prices, and bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. When you donate your gently used items to the Restore, you’re helping change the lives of many by making affordable home ownership a reality!

If there are items you would like to donate, there are several options to donate the gently used items. The store is open Wednesday through Saturday 10:00 am until 4:00 pm and staff will be happy to assist you in offloading your items. You can also contact the store by phone at 978.227.5556 or use the online form at www.restorencm.org/donate to schedule a donation pick-up for qualifying items. Donations are picked up Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
